File Description

The Ticonderoga class cruiser is the kind of design I really, really like. A simple, clean two-nacelled design reminiscent of the Akula but with the nacelles leaning forward rather than aft, she's a magnificent ship for the role. This design already existed in the Trek modelling community, being derived from the old FASA fleets.... back when "my fleet" referred to blister packs full of pewter and detailed information taken from rule books, rather than textures and meshes working from source code.

Fireball_IV does not disappoint here. I've been watching the development of this ship in the forums, and now that I can see the final product, my verdict is simple applause. The glowing lightmaps, the detailed textures (although the shuttlebay looks slightly wonky), the brand new canon-based weapons with textures and sounds---- simply put, if this is the sort of quality work we can look forward to in Fireball_IV's upcoming Dawn of War total conversion, then anything else set in the TOS/TMP era will simply be put to shame.

I've had no less than three occasions this month where I've been totally astounded at the work we're seeing in this community-- first Aad Moerman's Defiant, then FahreS' Intrepid, now the Ticonderoga. It's times like these when being able to watch the continued work being done with the admittedly unworthy Armada II engine makes me very, very proud to be an active member in a community many years removed from first release of this product. The fact that we're still getting stuff like this, regularly, is proof enough that we're not going anywhere for a long, long time.

I highly recommend you download this one.

:cool:
